madgamer2 -> ets have a PARTY!!! (6/7/2009 6:22:10 PM)

WitE, a game set at the same scale and level that WitP except that it is a land battle. After the release of WitP no now could foresee how popular it would be.
Perhaps the second most popular battle in the Second World War was the East front.
A game with the detail of WitP on the eastern battles would be a great topic for a game. It might even in development as we speak but a ways off yet. Land and sea combat are two totally different kinds of fighting but a detailed game on the East Front would be great.

This is just one of those silly thoughts that pass through my head before I fall asleep at night along with a large LAN party with AE being the other. To actually sit down ad talk to all the interesting folks here (even the ones who I disagree with would be a dream come true for me. Dreams are cool but are just dreams after all (SIGH).

How did he miss it?




undercovergeek -> RE: ets have a PARTY!!! (6/7/2009 7:00:28 PM)

you would have thought with all the fuss and updated developer journals, threads, questions and general fanfare he must have seen something about it!




madgamer2 -> RE: ets have a PARTY!!! (6/7/2009 7:25:52 PM)

SIGH!!! it looks like I missed the boat ...... again. Not to worry as I can loose my way to the john and I live in a mobile home! Someone is going to tell me what I missed, right? Don't be shy speak right up LOL.

I may have stopped playing till AE comes out but I hang out here because with only a couple of exceptions I do like the people and would like to meet some of you in person. This group has been going e=sense the game was released in 04 and keeps growing. I think its the best...period.

Everybody knew about the GG east front game and perhaps it will turn out to be to the east front what WitP is for the Pacific war, we will have to see. What I was really wishing was for a WitP LAN Party. A East Front game is an East Front game but a WitP LAN Party..now that WOULD be something to tell the grand kids about. Can't you just see it hundreds of WitP game lovers all in one place...I guess such things just can't happen but its nice to think about anyway...

Everyone would need to move in for a few years to play it. Till 1943 that is.




Jeffrey H. -> RE: ets have a PARTY!!! (6/8/2009 7:22:23 PM)

Can you LAN up WiTP ?

For LAN parties, FPS/RTS games usually are the most fun.




madgamer2 -> RE: ets have a PARTY!!! (6/8/2009 10:28:20 PM)

I would tel you where you can put your FPS/RTS games but my mother taught me not to use words like that in public LOL. I guess I was assuming that null modum or other means could be used. Can't you see a couple of thousand hot seat games going on at the same time.
I actually had in mind a more social thing where folks could show some of the third party stuff that has been created. If by some long shot it actually would happen maybe it could be worked out to play on a LAN....but I guess not...but it sure is fun thinking about it...all those people in one place and all interested in the same game....(SIGH) life is limited at times. I guess I will have to content myself with knowing you through the forum. but if any of you get up to Iowa City IA(east part of the state..Uni. Of Iowa) look me up.

Jeffrey H. -> RE: ets have a PARTY!!! (6/9/2009 3:39:58 AM)

You could always start your own "mini-con". A convention for only WiTP players. You might get a dozen or so folks in your area to show up.

I'm not sure if WiTP supports multi, (>2) player simultaneous play.

Hrmm. Iowa. Last time I was there was on the Western side. In a small town called Atlantic. I stayed in Council Bluffs and drove to site for a day. It was a work related trip.




madgamer2 -> RE: ets have a PARTY!!! (6/9/2009 1:05:13 PM)

Iowa City (the first capitol of the state) is on the eastern side of the state right off I 80 about 60 miles from the Mighty Miss. river.
Yeah a WitP Con would be fun even if all we could do was play head to head games.
It would give us a chance to meet some of the regular players and a chance for us not so good players to pick up some tips. TO bad it could not happen on the release date (whenever that is)...Its fun to think about ...several hundred WitP folks in one place and the new AE to check out. Just a dream I'm afraid as I have neither the skill to organize such a thing or the money to finance it. We have a couple of places to hold it but that's about it. ....fun to think about in my slow moments.

Yah, I was born there, so I'm kinda slow, too. I say rent the old Armory and party hearty at the Fieldhouse and the Vine ... pool at the Copper Dollar ... is Joe's International Airport still around? Been a long time since my Iowa City days.

madgamer2 -> RE: ets have a PARTY!!! (6/9/2009 8:06:25 PM)

Boy it has been a while as the original fieldhouse is not the same and the Old Armory is gone as is the original vine (there still is one)and you would not recognize the down town except for Iowa Book & Crook. The old post office is now a senior center and most of the buildings along the river will not be repaired but will move to new locations including the art, theater, and Hancher as well. Let me know if your ever back this way I'll buy you a cold one.
